Black Swine in Sea Bright

Got here last night- They've been open 10 days, so we thought we would check it out. We expected inexperienced service, and great food. What we got was barely any service at all, (one server said it was her first night, and the other his second), and an owner in the front of the house who somehow disappeared after 9pm.

Their famous meatballs came out cold and had to be sent back. They were good just not great when hot. An original mussels oreganato came out dry but the concept was good.

Best item of the night was the carrot salad which was outstanding. For dinner we shared their famous burger- bun was way bigger than the burger and served not toasted at all. Our burger was ordered med rare and came out almost well- without a server in sight we ate it this way. The monkfish was plain and simple with a boring tomato based sauce.

I have to say, we were really disappointed in our experience. Another thing, this is a romantic, dark restaurant, yet a tv overhead spilled tv lights over our table- bizarre.

I have a feeling they're going to get it together- but I would say give them the summer to iron out the kinks. One more thing- they need noise reduction tiles- it's so loud in there, even with a half full restaurant.
